So this weekend my younger sister and I spent time with our parents, giving our other 2 siblings who are their on hand carers, a break. Our eldest 2 sisters …… I’m one of six…… joined us for a few hours.
Plenty of general chit chat but despite the impression I was giving, I felt I was on the outside looking in on everything.
My parents are 90 and 87 and naturally when they ask how I am I would never worry them so it’s always the go to answer ‘ yes I’m fine’
I know when I lose my parents I will be devastated but the whole weekend highlighted that there is no guarantees in life.
I feel awful that I was having these thoughts of how life is unfair and my husband at the age of 60 is not with me anymore.
Thank you for listening.
